'Proudly do my time': 74-year-old Trump adviser Peter Navarro goes to jail

The administration of Joe Biden on Tuesday made sure that former Trump White House trade adviser Peter Navarro was put behind bars for refusing to kowtow to ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's partisan commission she set up essentially to blame Trump for the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol.

"Every person who has taken me on this road to that prison is a friggin’ Democrat and a Trump-hater," explained Navarro, who now is the highest-ranking former member of former President Donald Trump’s administration to be jailed.

The New York Post said Navarro surrendered himself to a Miami federal prison for a four-month sentence after courts and the Biden DOJ insisted he be locked up.

The 74-year-old defied a congressional subpoena from Pelosi's partisan committee, which now has been confirmed to have concealed evidence exculpatory to Trump for that riot. It was found in contempt of Congress by Democrats.

"When I walk in that prison today, the justice system, such as it is, will have done a crippling blow to the constitutional separation of powers and executive privilege," he warned.

He was convicted of two counts of contempt of Congress after he cited the longstanding principle of executive privilege as a justification for his refusal to tell Congress what they wanted to hear about Trump.

His conviction remains on appeal, but he was ordered to start serving the time anyway.

"Navarro was adamant that he was merely 'doing my duty to this country' by adhering to executive privilege, which grants a president authority to withhold certain material from Congress," the report said.

However, court rulings claimed Navarro wasn't protected under executive privilege.

"I will walk proudly and in there and do my time," he said.

report from The Gateway Pundit noted that Fox News anchor Sandra Smith "cut away" from Navarro's short address to reporters "to do a fact check."

The report continued, "Navarro did not comply with the subpoena because he said Trump told him to assert executive privilege. … Biden’s corrupt DOJ sought a six-month prison term for Navarro. Late last month, Judge Amit Mehta sentenced Peter Navarro to 4 months in prison and ordered him to pay a $9,500 fine."

Mehta had banned Navarro from claiming executive privilege in his defense, leaving the jury with less than all the evidence in the case.
